I dressed up as Frida Kahlo for Halloween. I really enjoyed creating this costume. It was comfortable and relatively easy to put together. Not everybody knew who I was supposed to be. Some people thought I was the Chiquita banana lady. But others knew immediately and gave me a knowing smile. It was like being “in” on an “inside joke” all day.
I love Halloween because I love creating a costume. It’s like a design challenge. The picture below is from a belated work Christmas party — we celebrated in April. We all got together at the library after closing and watched The King’s Speech and dined on British-y food. The fine fellow with me is a former co-worker. Fun, right?
All this talk of costumes makes me jealous of Cindy Sherman. She is always playing dress-up.
